    Two men were shot in the parking lot of the Residence Inn on Main Street in Hartford this New Year’s Eve.

    Police said the hotel threw a rowdy group out, and a short time later gunfire broke out in the parking lot on Market Street.

    Two victims were found on Columbus Boulevard with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police. They were both taken to Hartford Hospital for treatment.

    “This had nothing to do with First Night. This looks like a targeted attack on the other side of downtown. So this had nothing to do with festivities downtown with First Night in Bushnell Park," said Hartford Police Lt. Aaron Boisvert.

    Boisvert said hotel staff and some witnesses are cooperating with the investigation.

    A driver escaped a vehicle on Interstate 95 South in New London Monday night, just before it burst into flames, according to the New London Fire Department. 

    It happened in front of the Chili’s restaurant around 9 p.m. and officials said the driver hit a guardrail.

    When firefighters arrived, the Toyota Rav4 was engulfed in fire and leaking gasoline, which made firefighting efforts challenging, according to a news release from the fire department. Foam was used to extinguish the flames. The driver was not injured.

    One firefighter suffered minor facial injuries and was taken to Lawrence + Memorial Hospital in New London for treatment, according to the news release.

    A funnel cloud developed over the Encinitas-Carlsbad area Monday afternoon as a result of a heavy rain cloud that moved into the area, according to the National Weather Service.

    The funnel cloud appeared to a continuation of a weak waterspout that was spotted over in Carlsbad and dissipated as the rain cloud moved further inland, according to the NWS.

    The funnel cloud was first reported around 2:20 p.m. and lasted about 15 minutes, NWS meteorologist Bruno Rodriguez said.

    Funnel clouds are a common occurrence, happening a few times a year in San Diego, typical over coastal area, he said. In order for a funnel cloud to be considered a tornado, it needs to touch the ground and this one did not.

    The funnel cloud caused some excitement over social media as people share photos and videos of the funnel online.

    NBC 7’s viewer Sydney Hastings sent in this video of the funnel in Carlsbad. If you have an interesting video or photo to share, be sure to send them to isee@nbc7sandiego.com.

    Three police officers in a Kentucky city were able to have a little bit of fun to end 2018 as they “mourned” the loss of a doughnut truck that had caught fire.

    The Lexington Police Department tweeted out photos showing the officers in various stages of sarcastic grief after the Krispy Kreme truck that caught fire had been loaded onto a tow truck and was being taken from the scene – with the caption “No words”.

    Police did not release information about the crash, but a Lexington television station reported no one was hurt and the truck was empty at the time of the fire.

    As of Tuesday morning, the post had been retweeted nearly 4,000 times and liked over 12,600 times – including officers and agencies from across the country offering their condolences.

    Look, you would want to keep the football that you threw for your first touchdown in the NFL, too.

    That's how Eagles third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld felt after subbing in for an injured Nick Foles Sunday. In the fourth quarter, he floated the ball to Nelson Agholor in the fourth quarter for a TD against the Redskins -- Sudfeld's first in the NFL.

    Sudfeld called to Agholor to keep the ball, but Agholor was already handing it to a jersey-clad kid in the stands. 

    Which led to a sweet scene in which the young fan gave Sudfeld the ball and got plenty in return.

    "It’s still sinking in that I got an NFL football, and I got to meet players," said Cohen Zechman, 10, via Facebook Live.

    Cohen and his dad, Derrick, were seated in the second row of the end zone when Agholor scored. Cohen looked thrilled when his dad was able to get Agholor's attention and then got the ball for his son.

    And Sudfeld looked a little sheepish when he approached and asked if there was any way they could switch.

    "Nelson was looking all over. Then, he spotted me and came over. He gave me the ball. Then, I saw Nate had, like, a funny face," Cohen said.

    The swap was made. But don't worry about Cohen, an Eagles fan from Northumberland County, Pennsylvania.

    He ended up with not only good feelings from Eagles fans everywhere but with another signed ball and gloves from Agholor and Zach Ertz.

    They will fit in well with Cohen's collection of Eagles swag, including a Fathead, signed helmet and replica Super Bowl ring.

    "Pretty cool stuff, but what we got last night really was awesome!" Cohen's mom said on the Facebook Live.

    "It worked out nice because I got a ball, and he got his first career touchdown. And he deserves it more," Cohen said.

    Agholor, meanwhile, didn't seem too concerned.

    "Nate Sudfeld is gonna throw a lot more," Agholor said after the game. "He's gonna throw a lot more touchdowns and have a great NFL career."

    The weather will be quiet Wednesday as students return to school and many people head back to work. 

    Some light snow is possible later Wednesday night or Thursday morning. While the snow shouldn’t be a big deal, it could slow the morning commute.

    Roughly 150 migrants attempted to climb over or crawl under the U.S.-Mexico border fence into California in a clash with U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents involving rocks and tear gas, the agency said.

    Agents first discovered a group of 45 migrants in San Diego Monday night due to CBP’s increased presence at the border, following the ongoing migrant caravan.

    The few dozen migrants were then turned back toward Mexico, CBP said.

    Shortly after, migrants began throwing rocks over the fence at CBP agents and officers, said authorities.

    Agents said several teenagers were put over the fence’s barbed wire in heavy jackets and blankets.

    CBP said small children were also being put over the fence, but the migrants were “having difficulty accomplishing the task in a safe manner.”

    The agency said it couldn’t assist the children attempting to cross the border because of the rocks being thrown at its officers.

    Agents deployed smoke, pepper spray, and tear gas to stop the rock throwers, according to CBP. These deployments were directed at the rock throwers and not at the migrants trying to cross the border in a separate area, the agency said.

    “No agents witnessed any of the migrants at the fence line, including children, experiencing effects of the chemical agents, which were targeted at the rock throwers further away,” CBP said.

    An Associated Press photographer witnessed at least three volleys of gas launched onto the Mexican side of the border near Tijuana’s beach early Tuesday.

    It affected the migrants, including women and children, as well as members of the press, according to AP.

    The gases eventually stopped the people from throwing rocks, and they fled.

    CBP said “most” of the migrants attempting to enter the U.S. returned to Mexico.

    The agency apprehended 25 migrants, including two teenagers, CBP said.

    Under CBP use of force policy, the incident will be reviewed by its Office of Professional Responsibility.

    The New Year started with a splash for people in New Haven.

    The annual Polar Plunge for Parks benefiting the Elm City drew a large crowd to the chilly Long Island Sound.

    Between 150 and 200 participants lined up at Lighthouse Point Park in quirky costumes to raise money for charity.

    The water’s temperatures hovered in the mid-40s and the air was about 10 degrees warmer. Tuesday’s weather was a gift for Jessica Giunta, of Branford, who dressed up in a cardboard bikini that looked like a wrapped present.

    “It’s my birthday suit. But, it’s the family friendly version,” she joked.

    “It’s nicer inside the water sometimes. Especially if you keep your head under, it’s not as cold,” said Brooke Strickland, who was visiting her family in Granby and decided to take the plunge.

    Organizers say the mild weather led to the largest crowd they’ve ever had.

    “I do this because I’m 71 years old and I can,” said Liz Duckrow.

    The New Haven woman was dressed head to toe in rubber ducks, a play on her last name. She said she’s participated in six polar plunges for charity.

    Freezing for a reason, participants raised $3,000 to $4,000 for the Elm City Parks in their biggest fundraiser for the year.

    “It’s just great, the support that we get. It’s January first,” laughed Doreen Abubakar, Elm City Parks Conservancy.

    The hardest part of the plunge for many was getting out of the water and back onto the beach.

    “Really cold, really cold,” said Duckrow.

    Duckrow said she’s ready to do it again next year.

    “It makes you feel alive. Who wouldn’t want to feel this way on New Year’s Day?”
